Grace has finished Destiny’s cycle and the whole series up in Ascension Saga 9. There are box sets for Trinity, Faith, and Destiny if you want to get the box sets and read them that way, or you can get each book alone. But, this particular series is all done now. We’ll be back to the rest of the IBP with the next book, I think.
So, as the finish of Destiny’s cycle and the whole series, this book is totally awesome. It is seriously the perfect way to end everything up the way that it should’ve been.
I don’t really know what to say about this one. It had me WTFing all over the place. I didn’t expect anything that happened in it, and I thought I had maybe kind of guessed where things were going when I was done with 8, but then in comes Grace who’s like, yeah, good try, girl, but FAIL. Thanks for playing.
About all I can safely say is that Queen Celene is pretty damn awesome, and it’s obvious where her girls get their BAMFness from. I wouldn’t want to mess with her at all.
I have loved the Aleran world. I kinda enjoyed the way that sex and mating works for the Alerans. It’s slightly different to any other of the worlds in Grace’s IBP ‘verse, but it works so very, very well. Alera has definitely been a breath of fresh air, and I would love to see more from this world in the future. I know that Aleran males have gone to fight the Hive, so surely they can be put into the entire bride program to be matched, right? Hopefully Grace won’t leave us hanging for too long for anything new out of the ‘verse in general.
There aren’t any spoilers under the picture this time around, because you know how I am. I’m not going to do any kind of spoiling. Enjoy the pretty picture. Go check out everything that Grace has written and happy reading!
